R Oak - Ms Lavin
December 2020 Newsletter
Welcome to Reception Oak!
My name is Ms Lavin and I will be your class teacher this year. Together with R Oak teaching assistant Ms Evans I am so excited for all the fun we are going to have!
September Return Information for Parents
A place to explore a sense of self and the world around me
We plan and create memorable learning experiences across the year in our long term plan. You can view the plan at the bottom of our class page along with other relevant information for the year ahead
At the top of this page you will find links for each half term, where we will update you on our medium term planning and post pictures of all the exciting things we have been getting up to in school!
It is a great way to keep up with our adventures!
We ask that reading books are brought back to school every Friday. We will then quarantine the books over the weekend so they can be changed and a new one sent home on Monday. Please sign you child's yellow reading record every time you read. We encourage you to read at least 3x a week. Thank you!
It is important that all children bring a waterproof coat to school everyday - we LOVE the outdoors in ALL weather! We also recommend for them to keep a pair of wellies in school for those really wet Manchester days.
As part of our Physical Education we will be developing our movement skills in a weekly dance session. Children will only take their shoes off and wear PE pumps. After half term - PE will begin and we will update you in due course what children will need.
It is the expectation that reading books and book bags are brought to school every day. Children will have time to look at books in our reading sessions and they can take home their pictures to share.
Please remember to put names in EVERYTHING, coats, hats, jumpers, PE pumps etc.
In line with our school risk assessment, staggered starting times have been put in place so that
we can safely manage the flow of parents and carers entering the school grounds. Please may we ask, if you can keep the communication brief at handover and dismissal times. If you would like to discuss anything of an urgent nature then please contact the school office. Alternatively, you may email the school office to arrange a an appointment via telephone or speak with me in person.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to embracing the year ahead.
Ms Lavin and Ms Rafiq
